Abstract
The CO2 laser systems are widely used for different specialised surgery types and cosmetological procedures. The market is filled with various offers regarding the systems, however, every manufacturer supplies a very limited range of handpieces with the equipment. Thus, the work of surgeon or a medical worker is complicated by the discrepancy of a handpiece with the ergonomic/technical requirements for a specific procedure. It may result in negative consequences of the procedure itself or a choice not in favor of laser technologies.

The work presents the design of optical system and construction of specialised handpieces for CO2 laser system based on the discussion with medical workers of several hospitals that directly interact with the equipment and the technical requirements of medical procedures.
